I kept moving along with the tool cabinet this week by getting finish applied to my custom door panels. While finish was curing, I finally swapped the cutterhead in my planer. I’ve had the spiral head since November so it feels good to finally cross that off the to do list.

Recently I built a coffee table for my parents from reclaimed lumber and pallet wood. All board all other than the top are from reclaimed pallets, the top is 2”thick oak cut from an old chopping desk or something someone threw away. Made a pair of them for out living room.
I just finished up a live edge walnut crotch coffee table with a total of 14 curly purpleheart bow ties. 11 on the top and three on the bottom. It’s finished with danish oil and wipe on poly. I also used raw steel hairpin legs. I made a video about the build that you can see here:
This is a kitchen set of a cutting board, cookbook holder, paper napkin holder, and salt and pepper shakers I made for my sister for Christmas this year. They are made from hard maple and walnut. The walnut came from some walnut trees we cut down and milled when I was a teenager. Since I’m almost 60 now I think it had plenty of time to dry. I used my own home-made beeswax & mineral oil mixture to finish them and they turned out great.
